SUMMARY: This document invites comments from the public on certain issues regarding how, for purposes of the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program, the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund should ensure that non-metropolitan counties receive a proportional allocation of Qualified Equity Investments (QEIs). All materials submitted will be available for public inspection and copying. DATES: All comments and submissions must be received by July 6, 2007. ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent by mail to: NMTC Program Manager, CDFI Fund, U.S. Department of the Treasury, 601 13th Street, NW., Suite 200 South, Washington, DC 20005; by email to cdfihelp@cdfi.treas.gov; or by facsimile at (202) 622–7754. This is not a toll free number. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information regarding the CDFI Fund and its programs may be downloaded from the CDFI Fund’s Web site at https://www.cdfifund.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 121(a) of the Community Renewal Tax Relief Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106–554), enacted on December 21, 2000, amended the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) by adding IRC section 45D, New Markets Tax Credit. Taxpayers that make QEIs in qualified Community Development Entities (CDEs) may claim the NMTC. Under section 45D(a)(2), the NMTC is equal to five percent of the QEI the first three years and six percent for the next four years for a total of 39 percent. The CDE must use substantially all of the cash from a QEI to make jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:21 May 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 Qualified Low-Income Community Investments (QLICIs). IRC section 45D(d)(1) defines a QLICI as: (A) Any capital or equity investment in, or loan to, any Qualified Active Low-Income Community Business (QALICB); (B) the purchase from another CDE of any loan made by such entity which is a QLICI; (C) financial counseling and other services to businesses located in, and residents of, low-income communities; and (D) any equity investment in, or loan to, a CDE. Under IRC section 45D(c)(1), a CDE is any domestic corporation or partnership if: (A) The primary mission of the entity is to serve, or provide investment capital for, low-income communities or low-income persons; (B) the entity maintains accountability to residents of low-income communities through their representation on any governing board of the entity or on any advisory board to the entity; and (C) the entity is certified as a CDE by the Secretary. The term low-income community, as defined under IRC section 45D(e)(1), means any population census tract in which: (A) The poverty rate is at least 20 percent; or (B)(i) in the case of a tract not located within a metropolitan area, the median family income for such tract does not exceed 80 percent of statewide median family income, or (ii) in the case of a tract located within a metropolitan area, the median family income for such tract does not exceed 80 percent of the greater of statewide median family income or the metropolitan area median family income. In addition, pursuant to the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108–357), certain other census tracts and Targeted Populations may be treated as low-income communities. Section 102(b)(6) of the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109– 432) (the 2006 Act) amended IRC section 45D(i)(6) to provide that the Secretary shall prescribe regulations to ensure that non-metropolitan counties receive a proportional allocation of QEIs. For purposes of the NMTC Program, the CDFI Fund defines metropolitan area and non-metropolitan area in accordance with OMB Bulletin No. 04– 03 (Update of Statistical Area PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Definitions and Additional Guidance on Their Uses) and based on 2000 Census data. The CDFI Fund is seeking comments from the public regarding how it should ensure that non-metropolitan counties receive a proportional allocation of QEIs. Commentators are encouraged to consider, at a minimum, the following issues: 1. Allocations of QEIs. IRC section 45D(i)(6) requires that the Secretary ensure that non-metropolitan areas receive a proportional allocation of QEIs. However, the CDFI Fund does not allocate QEIs to geographic areas, per se. Rather, the CDFI Fund allocates NMTCs to CDEs, the vast majority of which have service areas encompassing statewide, multi-state or national markets, and which include both metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties. Further, the location of an allocatee CDE’s headquarters is neither indicative of the geographic locations of its investors (the sources of its QEIs), nor of where it intends to make its QLICIs. An allocatee headquartered in a non-metropolitan area may make QLICIs in metropolitan areas, just as an allocatee headquartered in a metropolitan area may make QLICIs in non-metropolitan areas. Similarly, an allocatee’s investors may be located in metropolitan or non-metropolitan counties. Consequently, commentators are asked to consider several possible alternatives for ensuring that nonmetropolitan areas receive a proportional allocation of QEIs: (a) Location of investors. Should the CDFI Fund endeavor to ensure that a desired proportion of investors (those persons or entities making QEIs in CDEs) reside or be headquartered in non-metropolitan counties? (b) Location of allocatees. Should the CDFI Fund endeavor to ensure that either: (i) A desired proportion of NMTC allocatees (as a percentage of the total number of allocatees) in any given NMTC allocation round is headquartered in non-metropolitan counties; or (ii) a desired proportion of NMTC allocation authority (as a percentage of the total dollar amount of allocation authority) in any given NMTC allocation round is provided to CDEs E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1
